Papercuts celebrates 15th anniversary of You Can Have What You Want with vinyl reissue

Plus, stream two bonus tracks

2024 marks the 15th anniversary of Papercuts’ classic third album, You Can Have What You Want, originally released on Devendra Banhart and Andy Cabic’s Gnomonsong label. For the 15th anniversary, Papercuts’ Jason Quever is reissuing the album on vinyl for the first time since its first pressing, on his own Panam Analog Recordings imprint, and sharing two rare bonus tracks from that same recording session. “Jet Plane”(demo version) is an alternate version of album track “Jet Plane” and “Baby It’s You” is a cover of Casiotone For The Painfully Alone (not to be confused with The Shirelles’ song of the same name). 

You can purchase the vinyl here.

“It’s been 15 years since releasing You Can Have What You Want, my third record as Papercuts. In celebration, we are announcing a re-release of the album on glacial blue vinyl from the original master plates, on my own label imprint Panam Analog Recordings, through Revolver USA distribution. Official release date is April 5th, preorders are available HERE (also available via Revolver Distribution at stores and online shops.) 

It was a record that came from a preoccupation with vintage analog organs, my beloved Hofner bass, self played strings (mostly), and a new love of Kate Bush and Broadcast. With contributions from Alex Scally and Graham Hill (Beach House), it was the second album made in the living room of a small house in the Excelsior/Outer Mission district of San Francisco that was completely recorded on analog tape from start to finish. Upon reflection, the themes on the record are depression, isolation, doomed relationships, with a little hope thrown in, all through a faux Sci Fi, Twilight Zone influenced facade. After a grueling cross country tour and an album that had gotten some attention, my response was to recede into a more mysterious, less folky, less exposed sound. Diving into the refuge of the studio with a loose rotation of musician friends proved to be cathartic then, perhaps that still comes across all these years later.” –Jason / Papercuts
